A - Pours almost black with a small head about 1 finger in width; some visible carbonation; nice, sticky lacing.

S - Hints of dark chocolate, coffee, and vanilla cream.

T - Starts with a small presence of hops, but a strong flavor of coffee and dark chocolate become present mid-drink; finishes strong with a pleasant aftertaste.

M - Surprisingly light-bodied with medium carbonation; easy drinkability.

O - Overall this is a great milk stout and even better beer; would recommend this to most beer enthusiasts.

A - Pitch black, and leaves a huge head. I "pored hard" as instructed on the bottle. It took a minute or so, but a huge head formed, and lasted all the way down. The way a perfect stout should look

S - Vanilla beans, roasted coffee. Sugar.

T - Sweet, chocolate, roasted coffee. Delicous.

M - Full bodied. Rich, smooth. About perfect mouthfeel

O - An excellent milk stout, at a great price. Could become my go-to stout. Digging it.
